UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator
UPS & Diesel Back-up Generator - what exactly is their role and why are they available in data center facilities everywhere around the world?
UPSs and diesel generators are 2 backup systems that are kept by web hosting providers inside their data centers in the event that there are interruptions in the primary power source or the current is unsound and unable to maintain the proper running of the web servers based within the facility. UPS refers to Uninterruptible Power Supply or Uninterruptible Power Source and it's a powerful battery which works non-stop. It is connected to both the electric power network and the web servers at all times, so anytime the power stops, the UPS is already up and running, which helps prevent the servers from going down even for a second. The diesel generator is literally an engine which can supply the needed energy to keep the machines working for a longer period of time. In the case of an outage, the UPS gives the needed time for the diesel generator to start and then to take over until the main source is restored.
